The FA Cup should be an Arsenal top priority now

Hello! With Arsenal finding it difficult to winning a game in the Premiership, won’t it be a wise decision to channel all our efforts towards the cup games? If we ended the season as FA cup and Europa cup winners, won’t we have recorded a successful season?

Unless we re-arrange our priorities, we may end the season on a very low. Why did I say so? Well, from the way I see things in the league, Arsenal may end the season outside the top four. We should be grateful if we ended the season in the top ten! As far as this season is concerned, we have lost our chances. Even if we go on a winning run, it still may not guarantee us a top four finish, because the other clubs in the top six will not just sit and watch us push them out of the top four, would they?

Aubameyang’s Barcelona link is an unwelcome distraction

The transfer window will be shut in a few days time; with no serious transfer activity going on in Arsenal, one may not really care when the transfer window closes. However, with recent reports linking our top scorer Aubameyang to Barcelona, it won’t be out of place if one wishes the transfer window closes today.

According to the Sun, our top scorer has agreed to join Barcelona but the transfer would only be possible if Auba demands to leave.

AFCON in January is bad for African players as well as Arsenal

Good day Gooners. Hope we have moved on emotionally and mentally from our stalemate against Sheffield United over the weekend? Tomorrow, we are playing Chelsea at the bridge; I believe we can get a positive result from that game.

Last week it was reported that the African cup of nations, AFCON, was going to be moved back to January for next year’s cup of nations in Africa. This plan to move the competition was initiated by the Cameroonian FA, in conjunction with the confederation of African football, CAF. Cameroon, who are hosting next year’s competition, wants the tournament to be played in January because by June/July, the country may likely experience heavy rain falls. With this excuse, they may be justified after all to move the tournament backwards, right?

Arsenal should sign Stones now, not in the summer..

If we are signing John Stones, let us be fast about it

The rumours are getting stronger; the news has just refused to die. John Stones seems to be nearing a loan move to Arsenal and if we are to believe what we read online, then it is only a matter of when and not if, regarding John Stones transfer to Arsenal. I can’t wait to have him at Arsenal. I have sorely missed having the rugged, experienced English born type of defender at Arsenal.

Man City couldn’t beat Arsenal’s Invincibles record – Why should Liverpool?

Hello once again gooners. How do we do? Just this morning as I lay on bed, I went through some sport sites. While scrolling through, I stumbled across a site that went with this headline: “Arsenal set to lose their invincible records to Liverpool”. Like seriously, how sure are they that Liverpool will equal our records at the end of the season, when the season just got half way? Even if we do lose our record to them, does it change anything about Arsenal’s record?

Will Mesut Ozil now stay at Arsenal?

Ozil holding World CupDoes Ozil’s new found form mean he should be allowed to stay at Arsenal?

It has not been an easy ride for Mesut Ozil at Arsenal in recent years. The player, who cost us a fortune when he was bought from Real Madrid, has been a divider of opinions amongst football fans and football analysts. Many believe he has passed his prime and that he should be sold, others believe he still has a lot to contribute to the team. Yet, others feel he has been wrongly utilized in the team. Whatever the opinion is, Ozil has surely divided opinions.

Arsenal players should have no say in choosing the new coach

Should the players have a say on who coaches them?

I feel sad whenever I hear the word “player power”. I feel football has gotten to a stage whereby players are given so much power to either decide which coach to be hired or fired. A manager, who probably wants to last long as the coach of a club, must have a good relationship with his senior players or else he loses the dressing room. What a delicate situation we find ourselves in.

Arsenal should not worry about facing Olympiakos in the Europa League

Olympiakos may just be the best draw we could get

The draw for the knockout stages of the Europa league has been made and in all sincerity, Arsenal got a good draw. We are lucky to be paired against the Greek team, Olympiakos. Without trying to be disrespectful towards them, this is a winnable game for Arsenal.

After playing our last game against Standard Liege, attention was shifted towards the draw for the knock out stages; many feared we were going to be pitted against the likes of Inter-Milan, Ajax or even Manchester United. A lot were of the opinion that meeting any of these teams, could spell doom for us. How we got to the stage whereby we now fear teams, is another topic for another day.
